QUANTUM ENIGMA is an installation, which utilizes radioactive materials such as Thorium for generating random numbers sequence that has a many applications as a great cryptographic key and source of random light and sound impulses. The existing computing machines don’t generate random sequences; the so called pseudo-generators of random numbers are periodic. This is why the project reaches quantum states which are highly randomized and can be used for generating random numbers.
Understanding of the use of random numbers plays a very important role in times of mass surveillance. Random numbers sequence obtained from radioactive decay is a great cryptographic key. Cryptography is the ultimate form of non-violent direct action! There are math problems that you can create that even the strongest state cannot break. Cryptography allows to create regions free from the coercive force of the outer state. Free from mass interception. Free from state control. Be Random. Don’t Let Politicians and Economists Hack Your Activity!
